Ringtons Signature Classic Earl Grey Aromatic Loose Leaf Tea is a perfect balance of bergamot blended with our carefully selected congou tea from the mountain farmers of South Eastern China. Made to a traditional recipe using large Chinese black leaves scented with Bergamot oil to give a light, slightly smoky and zesty flavour that is subtle, and not too lemony. One of our most popular blends, we’re confident our superior quality Ringtons Signature Classic Earl Grey Aromatic Loose Leaf Tea will impress even the most discerning of tea drinkers.
In the 1830s the British Prime Minister, Earl Grey, gave his name to this popular Afternoon tea.
Ingredients & Nutritional Information
Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup. Freshly drawn water (which has not been over-boiled) will bring out the finest flavours of our teas. Just boiled water is the ideal temperature for Black, Aromatic, Oolong and Infusion or Fruit & Herbal blends.
Use water at just below boiling point for Green, White and Yellow teas.
Brewing - All teas need time to properly infuse, releasing their true flavours.
Black and Aromatic teas are best brewed for 3-5 mins, but no longer. Oolong teas will take no less than 2 mins but the leaves can be re-infused several times. Green and White teass are best brewed for 1-3 mins. Infusion or Fruit & Herbal blends are best brewed for at least 4 mins.
Preservation - Once opened, always keep your loose tea in an airtight caddy or container and enjoy within the Best Before Date.

I have been looking for a good balance between Bergamot flavour and a good but not strong black tea.
This is exactly what was needed. Its very refreshing, light (even with 5 minutes of brewing, which i prefer)
But the bergamot flavour is real and balances out the tea perfectly. Dont even hesitate to purchase. All you need is an infuser or as i use a strainer and a jug/cafetiere !
